Risk-Sharing to be Tested
Introduction of a pilot project for introduction of a new state purchase model “Risk Sharing, is scheduled for March-April 2017. Pilot regions – Moscow, Moscow Region and Kaluga have been defined. A new model of state purchase will e tested here. According to this model the cost of drugs will be completely reimbursed by the state. But if the treatment is not effective, the costs for purchase of drugs for patients not achieving results, will be returned by the manufacturer. The returned funds will be spent on purchase of drugs for other patients.
The test will continue for one year. Based on its results a decision will be made as to how effective the suggested model is, and whether it would be reasonable to extend it to other regions.
